Recipe: Paleo Waffles

by Holly Wood,

If, like us, you’re all pancaked-out, but still looking for something just as delicious for breakfast, then this paleo waffle recipe is just what you need. They taste amazing, whether simply served with your favourite berries, or with coconut whipped cream as an indulging treat.

For this recipe you’ll need two mixing bowls, an electric hand mixer (you can do it manually, but it may cause aches!) and a waffle iron. This recipe will make about 4-6 servings but may vary depending on your waffle iron.

Please note: this recipe is not vegan.


  • 3 eggs at room temperature (you can separate them for extra fluffiness if you choose)
  • ½ cup organic coconut milk
  • 6 tbsp coconut oil, melted and cooled to almost room temperature
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1sp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup blanched almond flour
  • ¼ cup tapioca flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt


  1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, coconut milk, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla
  3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix by hand until well combined
  4. If separating the eggs, beat the egg whites on high speed with an electric hand mixer until stiff peaks form, then fold egg whites into the batter to combine
  5. Heat your waffle iron and brush it well with coconut oil
  6. Pour batter into the centre of the iron, gently spreading just a bit before closing. Cook waffles according to your waffle iron’s instructions
  7. Serve with optional toppings such as berries, but butter, coconut whipped cream and additional maple syrup 

Review: our favourite coconut yoghurts

by Holly Wood, , link

We’re always on the search for fantastic dairy-free products and our favourite trend at the moment is coconut yoghurt. Not only is it a delicious alternative for vegans or those with a dairy intolerance, yoghurt made from coconut milk is also mildly fermented and contains friendly bacteria, making it great for your gut health.

With so many becoming available on the mainstream market, we got together as a team to test the most popular products and give you our recommendations.

  • Organic: yes
  • Raw: no
  • Vegan: yes

A long-time Radiance favourite, CO YO get it right yet again with a creamy, delicious and indulgent product. We’d be happy to eat it on its own, or else serve it with pudding at a party. It is expensive, but a definite cut above the rest.

Best for:

  • Taste: 5/5
  • Value for money: 4/5

  • Organic: no
  • Raw: yes
  • Vegan: yes

It may not be organic, but this budget-friendly coconut yoghurt from Coconut Collaborative does deliver on taste. It’s very coconutty, has a good texture and is a great all-rounder for families.

Best for:

  • Value for money: 4/5

Rebel Kitchen Organic Coconut Yoghurt – 125g

  • Organic: yes
  • Raw: no
  • Vegan: yes

 This is a neutral yoghurt with very little sweetness, which does mask any coconut taste. We did find the texture a little strange and were not 100% sure on the overall taste. We’d recommend this yoghurt for people who are avoiding dairy, but don’t like the taste of coconut.

Best for:

  • Taste: 1/5
  • Value for money: 3.5/5

Pudology Yogs Natural Coconut Alternative – 350g

  • Organic: no
  • Raw: no
  • Vegan: yes

This coconut yoghurt has the tendency to separate a bit and had a bit of a sour aftertaste. It wasn’t altogether unpleasant, but we wouldn’t buy it again!

Best for:

  • Taste: 2/5
  • Value for money: 3/5

Radiance feature in GQ Magazine

Last month, Radiance was featured in an interesting GQ piece that outlined the best healthy food delivery services in the UK – you can read the full piece here:

Not only was it great to be discussed alongside the likes of Abel & Cole, The Detox Kitchen and Mindful Chef, it also got us thinking about the shift in perception when it comes to cleansing as part of a healthy diet.

More and more, we are seeing people booking multiple cleanses throughout the year, integrating them into their regular diets, instead of viewing it as a ‘quick and easy’ way to lose weight ahead of a looming event or holiday.

At Radiance, we are committed to the fact that a nutritional juice cleanse is a not a diet, but rather is a form of liquid nourishment that gives your digestive system a rest from the constant intake of food.

Therefore, it’s encouraging to see that publications such as GQ Magazine are getting on board with this, describing Radiance juices as ‘good as they get’ and after the cleanse found themselves feeling ‘genuinely more energised, less bloated and a little bit tauter all over.’
